But Tennessee Tech drained a 3 pointer to go up by 4, and held off the Cats at the end of the game, despite a Craig Moore 3 pointer with around 30 seconds left.
NU did get the ball with one second left on the clock, but couldn't get a shot off as Tech advances to tomorrow's second round game with Vanderbilt, a 105-59 winner of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez.
Leading scorer for Northwestern was Kevin Coble with 23 points, including 5 threes. Craig Moore hit for 10, including 2 3s and 2 free throws. Vince Scott was 4 of 9 from the floor for 8 points.
NU shot 46.3% [25-54] from the field and .333 [9 of 27] from outside the arc, but Tech finished with a 49.1% FG percentage and made 7 of 15 threes.
The Wildcats next play Puerto Rico at 9 AM Wednesday morning.
Coble Scores 23 but the Cats Lose 66-65
Any time the Northwestern Wildcats score over 60 points you expect them to win.
